Babka Baking Workshop - December 14

Young Israel of Great Neck presents a Babka baking workshop on December 14, led by Naomi Elberg.  A native of Montreal, Canada, Naomi moved to Southfield, Michigan back in 2010 with her husband, Josh and 3 young boys. Originally an early childhood educator, she found her true passion in baking and the kosher culinary world. In 2014, Naomi decided to follow her dream full time by starting TGIS Challah—which stands for Thank Goodness it’s Shabbos—offering challahs, babkas and more. She also started doing cooking and baking demonstrations for charitable, corporate and other events. Naomi can be found on Instagram as @naomi_ TGIS.


Weekly Update from the President - November 19

Dear Kehila,

It seems like old times again at the Young Israel of Great Neck. After some 20 months, we gathered for a beautiful indoor kiddush last week, we enjoyed a seudat shlishi, and we celebrated a siyum together as a kehila. We anticipate with many of the youngest members getting vaccinated and many adults receiving booster shots, we should be able to continue our return to normalcy. As the colder months approach, I would like to emphasize the advice of our medical committee that if you exhibit any symptoms, you should please recover at home and not attend shul.

This coming week most of us get a little extra time off to spend with family and friends. To accommodate everyone's Thanksgiving plans, we will be following a Sunday davening schedule on Thursday morning and offering extra mincha and shacharit minyanim on Thursday afternoon and Friday. I wish everyone an enjoyable long weekend coming up, and we are looking forward to seeing all our college kids back in shul as they visit us next week.

Thank you to everyone who has RSVP'd and committed to attending our meeting with Congressman Suozzi this Sunday morning. It is important as a community to make our elected officials aware of concerns we have for ourselves and the Jewish community at large.

Regards and Shabbat Shalom,

David Basaleli
Young Israel of Great Neck
